College Courts Frequently Asked Questions

What size are the mattresses?

College Court townhouses have double beds. Some of the mattresses are longer so it might be best to bring unfitted sheets.

What do I need to bring to outfit my room?

Students will be responsible to bring their own linens (sheets, pillows, and blankets), towels, shower mat, waste baskets and laundry hamper. We recommend purchasing a few canvas or plastic cube storage bins. These fit perfectly in the wire shelving in the closets and are handy storage for clothing or other items.

The shower comes with a shower curtain so no shower curtain is required.  A starter cleaning kit will be provided to each house with basic needs (eg: broom, dust pan, cleaning cloths, window cleaner, bathroom cleaners, shower squeegee, swiffer wet mop, garbage bags) to keep their rooms tidy.  Students can also sign out and receive additional cleaning kit items at our front desk free of charge for a single use.

We also offer free lockers to store items which may endure heavy debris such as work boots, coveralls etc in our bootroom (students must supply their own lock). Other items that may make your stay more comfortable include your personal electronics, head phones, hangers, and power bars.

Can I decorate my room?

Students are encouraged to make their space their own by adding items such as a throw rug, poster, photographs or miscellaneous decor. Any tacking to walls is discouraged unless small finishing nails are used. A minimal amount of finishing nail holes are okay, but 3M hanging strips are not allowed. No painting or permanent changes may be made to the room.

Furniture is affixed to the wall and may not be moved. Students are permitted to bring their own mini fridge or microwave for your bedroom if you choose. However, fridges must be newer than 5 years old and have an amp usage of no more than 3.5 amps. Microwaves can be no larger than 700 watts and have an amp usage of no more than 6 amps.

Is there storage for my bike?

There is a bike rack at the south end of the building which students can lock their bike for free at their own risk (students must provide their own lock).

Anything that I should leave at home?

Any weapons are strictly prohibited; candles, incense or any other items that are flammable are also not allowed. Other banned items include bulk alcohol (ie., kegs, texas mickey’s, pony kegs, etc.). Decor that may be offensive, lacking in diversity or inclusion will not be tolerated (ie. swastikas, confederate flag, pornography).

Can I bring a pet?

Fish in a tank under 3L are allowed but other animals are not allowed.

How do I know if I've been accepted into the Centennial Village or College Courts residence?

Emails containing information including move-in dates and details will be sent to students prior to move in.
